How aware are you that we all have the same amount of time per day?
Really, aware. Intentionally aware.
So, what makes people like Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates so productive and wealthy?
They also have 24 hours per day.
It is their awareness.
Are you distracted by what you feel you have to do rather than focused on what you get to do?
Replace the word 'have to' with 'get to' and it instantly feels different.
If you are excited that you get to be in the market each day - consistency - rather than feeling like you have to, it is an empowered choice.
Make your choices with intention. With awareness.
What do I look for in a person during demo?
Awareness is key.
How aware are you of your time you choose to be in the market?
How focused are you when placing trades so you are able to walk away with confidence?
Are you worried about being profitable, without actual money on the line, or are you aware and coachable?
There is no secret formula that equals the amount of time you must be in the market to create more success than the next guy.
It's far more about how aware you are - the consistency of just being and doing something in the market every day than it is about the time you spend.
The time in the market you get to choose each day is up to you - with some built in accountability of course.
Be aware of your time
From the gal who has ten kids, three jobs, and meal prep each night, to the retired veteran who has oodles of time on his hands - awareness allows both of them to be consistent and focused with their choices around time.
And it's not difficult to find trades. It's actually more about the person not putting in the time, created by their own awareness.
About those excuses
Real talk: excuses of not having enough time is a pack of lies and you know it.
The reason it's easy to put on that front is because that's what the majority of society does and teaches.
You sit and trade your time for money.
You sit and work more hours to do what? Get more money. Always responding to the man, trying to climb that corporate ladder, doing the same thing over and over again hoping you one day just magically get a different result.
How aware are you when that is your life?
Stop the insanity.
Don't worry - I used to be like you too. Until Prime Day Trading.
Be aware. Be protective of the same 24 hours we all have in the same day. Be a good steward of your time.
